Styling your hair every morning can be a challenge. These easy tips and tricks can help you save time and still look your best.

The beach wave look can be a little tricky to achieve, but this trick makes it so simple. Braid your hair in 3 to 6 braids, depending on hair thickness. Then go over the braids with a flat iron a few times. Undo the braids and voila, beautiful boho waves!
Tired of your bobby pins slipping out throughout the day. To make your bobby pins stay in place all day, make them sticky. Place them on a paper towel and spray them with hairspray before using them.
Bangs can be a wonderful, but scary thing. If you're afraid of commitment the faux bang is your new best friend. Tie your hair up into a very high ponytail then separate into two sections. Take the front section and loop it around, leaving the ends out over your forehead. Take the other section and twist it around the base of the loop, creating a bun. Tousle and style your faux bangs.
This trick will make your ponytail look much fuller! Start by pulling half of your hair into a ponytail and secure it near the top of your head. Next, pull your hair into a second ponytail and secure it about 1 to 3 inches below your first ponytail depending on the length of your hair.
For a clean, slicked back look without the crunch and greasiness of hairspray, style your hair, spray your hands with hairspray then run them over your hair. Bye bye stiff hair.
We all have a side where we prefer to part our hair. If your side part is getting a little flat all you need is dry shampoo. Part your damp hair down the middle and let it dry. Take a half inch to one inch section of hair next to the middle part and spray it with dry shampoo. Then flip it over the part and tousle with your fingers.
Fly-aways are nothing to worry about as long as you have a toothbrush nearby. Spray a toothbrush with hairspray and comb it through your hair to keep fly-away at bay.
Hair elastics are miracle workers but we could do without that annoying crease they leave. For a creaseless pony tail, separate a strand of hair behind the ear on each side of the head. Cross the two strands under your hair, then over and tie them in a knot.
To curl your hair in a jiffy, put it in a very high pony. Then split the pony into 3 to 5 sections, depending on hair thickness. Curl each section, remove the pony, and shake it out.
For chill beach waves, curl your hair as you would normally with your curling iron. After curling each lock, pull the hair straight and allow it to cool. This will make the curls look more relaxed and natural.
For a bouncy, voluminous ponytail try this trick. After pulling your hair into a ponytail, attach two bobby pins upright onto the back of your hair tie to prop it up.
Create a statement with your bobby pins. Use nail polish to paint them bright colors so they really stand out. Then create cool designs in your hair. They can be pretty and serve a purpose.
When using a curling iron to curl your hair, it is better to start at the middle of your hair rather than the end. This will make your curls look more natural and last longer.
